Re: Considering to leave Switzerland

You would have to look at it less in absolute terms and more in how it would work out relatively. You could move to, say, Germany, be on a lower salary but have lower living expenses so your net living standard would be similar to here (if you squint really hard and keep an open mind )
It's highly desirable to save money which would be spent in my home country (solving the young adult's housing question). Therefore I have to look at it in absolute terms.

How long have you been in Switzerland? If it's just the 3 month probation period (or thereabouts as you allude to in your post), anything under 6 months is probably not enough time to settle into a country. Switzerland is indeed not the easiest country to settle in but, given perseverance and finding an ability to roll with the punches, it's not a bad place to be.
It's 6 months and unfortunately there are too many punches that my mind could handle long term. If I stay here I am either a big sellout justifying all the punches with a high salary, or I would had found a wicked trick how make life better.
